French actor-turned-director Gilles Lellouche delivers an amiable comedy drama, set in the world of all-male synchronised swimming. With plenty of heart, the top-tier middle-aged cast lend the witty, if predictable, story much needed sparkle.

Not quite The Full Monty, but Sink or Swim is no half-baked premise either.

A surefooted crowdpleaser with enough warmth and the committed talents of a stellar ensemble cast to fend off any sense of predictability.

A sluggish two hours that delivers only in a triumphant final act that's as improbable as it is inevitable.
